MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A groundbreaking is set for a trash-to-fuel facility in West Virginia.

A ceremony is set for Wednesday for Entsorga West Virginia’s facility in Martinsburg.

In August the state Economic Development Authority board in Charleston authorized a $25 million bond to finance the project.

The Berkeley County Solid Waste Authority and Entsorga have been working on the project since 2009. The plant will use a mechanical biological treatment system to organize incoming waste without the need for employees to sort it by hand. Entsorga says the facility will divert municipal solid waste from landfills and use it to produce alternative fuels.
